Meet Bravo’s Real Housewives


One-hour “docu-series” The Real Housewives of Orange County will debut on Bravo Tuesday, March 21 at 10 p.m. (EST/PST), the network said Thursday.

According to Bravo, “The seven-episode series focuses on five real-life housewives living in a protected Southern California enclave, exposing the excitement, extravagance and everyday drama that exists in their unscripted and unrehearsed lives.”

“Bravo continues to innovate in the reality-TV genre with this riveting series exploring the complicated daily lives of five privileged women and their families," Bravo president Lauren Zalaznick said in a prepared statement.

“From Peyton Place to Desperate Housewives, viewers have been riveted by the fictionalized versions of such lifestyles on television,” she added. “Now, here is a series that depicts real-life ‘desperate’ housewives with an authentic look at their compelling day-to-day drama.”
